After trying to make Julia’s ruffle cake the other day, I used some of the chocolate cake batter to make my version of Black Forest. Julia has to lighten up..way too many instructions!
You can use any chocolate cake recipe, or even Duncan Hines.
I sub some brewed coffee for the water but you don’t have to..it’s a free country! :)
This is the pan I used..it is OLD.. A freebee from Duncan Hines when you bought their Tiara Mix…
Some say it is similar to a MaryAnn pan..whatever..
Bake the cake..
Put a thin layer of chocolate icing, then Cherry Pie Filling..
Pipe with fresh whipped cream..
I think it was Cathy at Wives with Knives who made Pea Soup with yellow peas…I had always used green. I had a ham bone and ham left so I tried the yellow..She posted her recipe…I just do some of this , some of that!
I think it is prettier…a milder taste…so dh says..I don’t eat pea soup..:)
I forgot to show my cute turkey name holders I got at CTS..
$2.29 for 4..
